Talking Turkey and My To Do List

We are talking turkey today and the most important thing on my to-do list  in the Wednesday Hodgepodge.  So, read on to find out what Sunday’s were like growing up, what I learned from working at a food place, and who I’d invite to Thanksgiving if I could!  Come join us for Wednesday Hodgepodge!  We’d love to have you!

1. Describe a typical Sunday from your childhood.

We would go to church and either go out to eat for lunch or eat a roast my mom had put in the crock pot.  Usually the afternoon was spent reading or doing homework.

2. How comfortable are you with uncertainty? Explain.

I am fine with it up to a point.  I tend to roll with the punches.  However, if it is something crazy, I get a bad stomach ache and can’t sleep until it is resolved.

3. What have you accomplished recently that might be described as crafty, as in ‘arts and crafts’ crafty?  If crafty doesn’t work for you, how about handy? Or both?

I’ve been on a jewelry making kick lately.  I just finished a beautiful necklace, earring, and bracelet set called “Blue Beauty”.  (It was a kit.)  I just ordered some more “pretties” from Fire Mountain Beads… so, I can’t wait until they get here.

4. Have you ever worked in a ‘food place’? What did you take away from the experience?

Yes, for three days.  The last day I worked, I dropped a frozen pizza dough on the ground and the manager (who was younger than I was) told me to pick it up and send it through the oven.  I took my apron off and walked out.  I learned to always watch them make my pizza at this particular restaurant.  LOL.

5. Cold turkeytalk turkeywhat a turkey…in recent days, which turkey phrase or idiom best applies to you and why? Click on the word turkey if you need to read more about the meaning behind each phrase.

Definitely “what a turkey.”  Certain people at work, I’d love to call a turkey.  Well, actually worse.

6. If you could have any one guest join your Thanksgiving dinner table, who would it be?

My brother.  It was his favorite holiday.

7. What is one thing you must accomplish today? 

Get the credit card bank reconciliation done at work.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

So, I am notorious for procrastinating.  I bought one of those wooden Advent calendars— the kind with the little drawers.  I just realized this morning (while driving behind the boat) that I have yet to paint it.  I am running out of time.  The first day of December isn’t that far away… I better get some paint this weekend.
